Calligraphy Tools


S939. Wafer Light Box
S939. Wafer Lightbox

Similar to the Artograph Lightpad, but even thinner - the Wafer Lightbox is only 3/8" thick. The lighted area measures a full 9"x12.5" or 12.5"x17", with the frame the same level as the lighted surface. The top and left side edges of the frame have a built-in ruler marked in both inches and centimeters. The Wafer's LED illumination is dimmable, provides an even spread of light from edge to edge, and is very low heat. Uses an AC adaptor (included). From Daylight.

Choose from two sizes:
9" x 12.5" lighted area (total size 10.5" x 14")
12.5" x 17" lighted area (total size 14" x 19")

S620. Clear Dappen Dish
Dappen Dish / Dampen Dish.

These small wide mouthed glass containers with relatively heavy bases are ideal for holding gesso, ink or gouache.

Peter Thornton used a dampen dish to reconstitute prepared gesso in a gilding workshop that John attended. He put a piece of prepared gesso in one of these small shot glasses, added drops of water, and got the gesso to the correct consistency. He then applied the gesso to his quill or pen from the dappen dish.

Metal Lid: See item S802

S934. Small Screw-Top Dinky Dip
S934. Small Rectangle or Square Dinky Dip, with 4 screw-top vials.

These mini inkwells allow you to see your nib as you dip into the ink, allowing you to easily control the depth. They are especially well-suited for pointed pen. Each has four plastic vials, four screw-tops, and an unfinished wooden base. The screw-tops seal the vials tight for transporting or storage (you should keep the filled vials upright). Vial inside dimensions: approximately 14mm dia. x 20mm high. (These are larger than the vials for our regular small Dinky Dip, now called "Flip-Top Small Dinky Dip.")

Choose your base shape:
Rectangle 1" x 4"
Square 2.75" x 2.75"

See S935 for refills.

If you prefer a vial with a flip-top, please see our Flip Top Dinky Dip, item S852.

If you prefer larger vials, please see our Jumbo Dinky Dip, item S853.
